Maryland woman wins $ 2 jackpot twice in 50 months
For two months, a Maryland resident managed to hit the jackpot twice in the amount of $ 50 000.
64-year-old lucky mount from Airy told Maryland lottery representatives that when she went to the Little George's Convenience Store in Westminster, the Gold Rush game caught her attention.
“Since it started recently, I knew that most of the prizes are still in the game. Therefore, I bought two tickets, got into the car and erased the protective layers in them. The first ticket was not winning, and the results of the second made me scream with joy, ”the woman said.
She erased the candy symbol and won the top prize in $ 50 000.
